“Excellent food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014 via mobile

On our one week holiday on Holbox we ate here twice and had lovely food both times. The restaurant doesn't perhaps look very welcoming or cozy, but Gerry is a wonderful person and had plenty of suggestions (worth listening to) about foods and served us interesting and lovely Mexican wines too. And, the food is delicious!

We had three kids under 5 years old with us, and the chef made sure they got what they longed for, and also took into consideration our sons milk protein allergy. He enjoyed his shrimps and steak!

Greetings to Rosa Mexicana and thanx for the experience!

“Food that takes you to heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

Jerry and the chef started their own business on Holbox recently and was an immediate hit. The food is elegant, innovative, modern, tasty and an excellent fusion of awsome mexican food. Jerry is so friendly and welcoming. They present the food with great knowledge and passion. I went there twice and need to go back to Holbox to try more exciting alternatives from the menu. This restaurant is a must! Just go there at least once, and try it for yourself. You will not get disappointed.

“The best of the best in the island!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

As soon as we arrived to Holbox, the taxi driver mentioned that Rosa Mexicano was a very good option to visit during our stay in Holbox. After a couple of days in Holbox we decided to give it a shot and went to have lunch. The whole experience was great, just from reading the menu, we wanted to order everything! Once the food arrived, it truly lived up to the expectations. The food was amazing and the service could not have been any better. We even decided to reserve for the New Years dinner.
Thumbs up for this great place!

“Outstanding food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013

The food here is in a legue of it's own and is by far the best, and most exciting restaurant in Holbox. Beautifully presented contemporary Mexican dishes with amazing flavour and fantastic cocktails. The service was impeccable, and each time we went the chef had created a special dish for our 2.5 year old daughter which she loved (they were so good we used to eat up the rest as they were such delicious creations). We ate here four times in total, and made it our mission to try new dishes each time, all of which, never failed to surprise us. A true find, make sure you give it a try!
Best wishes from the Stockholm family
